Reading the bible, then realizing that no All-Knowing All-Loving god had anything to do with it. Simply written by sexist, racist, warmongering, bronze age, superstitious goat herders.
Want a wife? Kill everyone in her village and "take" her after giving her a month of mourning.
Kidnap one and thank Stockholm syndrome, she's all yours!
Ask a girl out and she turn you down? Just rape her! If you are not caught, she gets stoned to death for not being a virgin. If you're caught, you pay the victimized father 50 shekels for loosing the right to negotiate her price, and she's your wife for life. Take that
Menstration? After a week of exile she must let a priest play gynecologist, buy a dove for the forgiveness of her sin
, then the final dove as thanksgiving for being allowed to return to society.
Boy - Be exiled a week, perform some blood ritual and child gets circumcised, get exiled a month, upon return: if poor, do the dove thing, if not poor buy lamb for atonement.
Girl - Be exiled 2 weeks, perform some blood ritual, get exiled for two months, if poor, do the dove thing, if not poor buy lamb for atonement.
If a woman catches her husband with another woman and kills him, she is to be put down like an oxen that gored a man. (Because this is not Adultry, but infedelity
) If a man catches his wife with another man, and kills her. It is his right as she is his property, and obligation because it is the law for Adultry. See, biblical definition isn't anyone who is married having sex with someone they're not, as they'll have you believe these days, but defined by having sex with a woman that is married to another man.
Divorce: Absolutely not under any circumstance!
Oh ****! Didn't know they would lynch Moses! I, who am the same yesterday, today and forever, am changing my mind so I don't loose Moses, rather than showing my All-Powerfulness by raising him from the dead then telling them to STFU. WAIT! Hold it! Stop I said! YHWH changed his mind!
Infedelity! It's the only reason for divorce that God will recognize! But remember, if the man remarries, Way to go! If the woman remarries, every time she lays with her new husband she's comitting adultry against her first husband, for as long as he shall live.
This is just scratching the surface on the sexism. I could keep going with other things like the scientific fails and everything else, it would just take me 66 books to do it.
I guess you could say theology has something to do with it. My moral compass is better than that. I know the difference between right and wrong, and I don't need a book that promotes slavery and rape to tell me.
